Does Switzerland only allow the two witnesses to be present? Maybe she is also shielding.

So another royal couple decided to just go for it and get married, good for them. Although in their case the religious wedding might have more guests and a party depending on when it is.

I guess the Queen not be able to be there must be having to do with the pandemic which must be very painful for her - but also for the Prince!
I guess when everything is over, there will be a religious ceremony in Greece with everybody joining in.

Had Theodora also a Civil Mariage ?

Congratulations to the couple but also so sad to see King Constantine in a wheelchair.

This is fantastic news. What a lovely couple. Both look very happy. The new Pss Nina of Greece wore a beautiful white suit. I wish them the very best for the future.

Congratulations to the couple.
This civil wedding, as I have read, is a prerequisite to be able to celebrate the religious marriage, because Philippos has a British passport and Nina Flohr Swiss, so the civil marriage is the marriage valid before the corresponding legislation, the religious marriage would be secondary. In conclusion there will be religious marriage later, I do not know when and where, but the legal requirement has already been fulfilled.
From the Royal family communiqué, I understand that Nina is not yet a Princess, she will be a Princess when she contracts a religious marriage, is my opinio or deduction.
On the other hand, I really liked seeing King Constantine, even in a wheelchair, and in Switzerland, thanks Stef who recently told us that King Constantine was in good health although with his movement problems.

Congratulations. I love this couple. it is normal for them to contract a civil marriage . She is Swiss and in Switzerland this is the legal marriage. They will marry in Spetses, by the orthodox rite, but with the pandemic, I think it is difficult to determine when it could be, but also I believe that first it has to be the wedding of princess Theodora.
Beltaneja , I know that King Constantine has many pathologies, which especially affect his mobility, but like I said a week ago, he is very well of the memory, and the proof of it is here. And he has traveled from Athens with Queen Anna Marie and Prince Nikolaos, I believe they have been the only ones who have attended to this event or legal act

The British don't require a 'civil wedding' before a religious wedding. So, they could have combined it in one ceremony in the UK if they wanted to. Not sure what there options were in Greece. Nikolaos and Tatiana married in Greece without a problem and doesn't Tatiana also have a Swiss passport?

Elegant, low key couple. Congratulations to them....lovely!

Yes but they didn't get married in London or Greece. They were married in Switzerland. And have to follow the rules of the land in which they wed. Which require a civil ceremony for it to be official.

They could have waited to be married later in Greece and just had one ceremony. There is many reasons they may have chosen not to wait.

A lot of couples who are from different countries choose to have two weddings, to celebrate in both their homes. Having a civil wedding and a religious one makes them both 'official'. A civil wedding in her home Switzerland and a religious wedding in his family's country of Greece is likely what they had planned from the start. Just downsized the civil due to covid.


Congratulations to the couple on their happy day :flowers:

She looks quite lovely and elegant in the simple white.
